A cultural crossroads for four centuries, the town of Louisbourg hosts our annual Louisbourg Crossroads concert. When you arrive, you’ll find a scenic town, heavy with salty sea air. As you’re welcomed into the town’s Playhouse, and greeted by gracious staff, you’ll find yourself in one of our most unique and intimate venues. The Louisbourg Playhouse is the next best thing to a house ceilidh that we can offer, and we promise your kitchen never sounded this good. Roger Stone has become known as a masterful songwriter, and a pretty fine guitar and banjo picker, too. Hanneke Cassel’s musical influences and fiddle-playing have taken her to many corners of the globe. Her compositions and virtuosic playing will give us a taste of some of those travels. Five-piece powerhouse trad band Ímar represents a bit of a crossroads all on its own, pulling Scottish, Irish, Manx and English influences into their sound. Their wit, charm and clean, pitch perfect tunes will bring a smile to your face. We promise.
